On New Years Day, it’s traditional to cook something that brings good luck such as corned beef, black eyed peas, etc. but while I like these things and often cook them on New Years day, I’m really not superstitious.

I think luck is mostly good attitude, hard work and being willing to make the best of every situation even if it’s a bad one.

(Enough philosophy already)

Here’s a list of favorite smoked recipes for New Years day that I think you’ll love and enjoy!

  1. Happy New Year Jeff. I’ve been loving the news letter and recipes. I share a lot of the recipes with my sister in Kansas I’ve had to do a workaround when I try one of the recipes by using my gas grill and some wood chips in foil packets. Surprisingly most of it came out O K. This year my wife decided to treat me to a new grill I now own a pellet smoker!! I can’t afford the Treager or the expensive models but when I unboxed my new Oakford 720 I was pleased with what I had. Today I’m putting it to the test. I’ve got a 2 1/2 lb. brisket flat, a 2 1/2 lb. A pork loin roast and a dozen armadillo eggs .
    I’m an old fart (77’ but love good BBQ. Im hoping ,with your recipes and my new toy, I’ll be able to create some.
    My best wishes to you and yours.
